Requesting a change to Anchor Text?

ON Marc Lindsay's video critque he mentions the anchor texta lot and i was wondering:
how we would go about offering different anchor texts in our reciprocal exchange requests and is this a normal request ?
also how can we change our anchor text once it is in place with someone,simple email and ask?thanks

Hi revimp,

You just need to request the keyword phrase you would loke the anchor to surround. For example, my site has a good position for myspace tutorials, but not myspace tutorial. So if I was exchanging, placing or purchasing a link to my site I would want the anchor text to be myspace tutorial. The code would look like:

Code: Select all
<a href="http://www.websitename.com/directory/page">Myspace Tutorial</a>


Cheers,
